Can some one HELP ME!!!!!!!!
I have a 2004 crown vic with a bad transmission i
cant afford to go to the shop so i need help/
directions on how to remove the transmission out
my car and what tools will i need can someone
Your regular good run of the mill tool set, a drain pan, a low lying jack with plywood sheet to lay and balance trans on or rent a trans jack, a couple of good, high jack stand, a cheater bar, a propane torch, a guy to help ya, a painter pen if u wanna mark something, if you need, a Chilton r Haynes book, a can of wd-40, a lot of patience and finally bengay for soreness from laying under...lol. Ive done them before, like this...kinda messy, but if you don't mind getting dirty u can o it!
Yup, if this is your first time it will take awhile and a lot of swearing. Search online too for help, use some Crown Vic forums as well.....http://www.crownvic.net/ubbthreads/ubbthreads.php
If you have few tools and little experience I would not attempt this repair. A transmission shop can have the transmission out very quickly.
Neccesity is the mother of invention...cvb, you can do it! You'll learn a lot, along with a lot of swear words u probably didn't know u knew...lol!
Thank you Mikbek your are very help and i enjoy learning new things thats y i want to do this myself i cant depend on shops all my life i could save money doing thing on my own
Dats da spirit! Please let us know wat happens. Ur the kinda of guy who will curse the job but love it for wat it teaches u! Lol Have fun my friend!
One word of caution b careful they r heavy!
Also b sure u clean cooler on radiator!
Ok thanks Mikbek
By the way...was r u going to do after u get it out?
I was going to swap it with another 4r7w transmission i just got to find which vehicles have it to see which is cheaper
A 2004 likely has a 4R75W transmission. I would check the numbers on it and make sure you go back with the same model transmission. A 4R70W is very similar, but they are electronically controlled so the other transmission will physically fit, but might not operate properly. The 4R75W is a heavy duty version of the 4R70W.
